A Whale of a Business


Frontline – TRANSCEND Media Service

Jan 1, 2013

A behind the scenes look at the ludicrous business that is captivity. This program focuses on the beacon for all captive cetaceans, Keiko. His rehabilitation and eventual release was the center of a controversy about keeping these intelligent animals in barren concrete tanks for our amusement. Join Neil Docherty as he interviews the big guys behind this practice and go back in time to see how all this started with the very first killer whale in captivity.
